I have no packing system; I just toss into a suitcase (yes, a suitcase, not cabin luggage) whatever I think I might need plus something for unexpected circumstances, such as unusually cold weather or rain. Be prepared for (almost) anything, that's my motto. I know, I'm a bit neurotic. But I'm also old enough to say 'so what': I decided to give up trying to 'improve' myself and instead embrace my neuroses a long time ago. A few more decades and I'll be able to pass them off as adorable eccentricities...

So, I do pack a sort of a capsule wardrobe, i.e. I may pack clothes in a certain colour scheme, so that they can be mixed and matched, but I don't plan any outfits in advance (it would be totally pointless: whenever I do plan an entire outfit in advance, I end up changing my mind at the last minute...). There are lots of basics (trousers, t-shirts, maybe a dress or two), 2-3 pairs of shoes, a couple of bags and at least 2-3 pairs of sunglasses, several big scarves and tons of jewellery (I need some variety). My accessories always take up most of the space in the suitcase. Seriously, if it wasn't for accessories, I could fit everything in cabin luggage. Perhaps I could pack just one bag, one pair of sunglasses etc? No, I don't think that would work...
